WHAT IS MSC?

Discover Your Inner Strengths

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is the capacity to be a strong and supportive ally to yourself as you live your life- the ability to sooth yourself when you need soothing, to motivate yourself when you need motivation, to provide for your own emotional needs, and to protect yourself when you need protecting! 

Mindful Self-Compassion is the superpower you didn't know you already have! 

How is that? Because the MSC training program builds resources that all human beings already have, even if we did not work to develop these resources in the past and even if we feel that we don't have that resource.   Self compassion is a courageous, empowered stance that stands up to stress and difficulty, to support as we live deeply and fully.  It builds our resilience and helps us to reduce our unnecessary suffering, including the ways that we unwittingly hurt on ourselves through self-criticism, self-isolation, or self-absorption.

Meeting Our Lives With Care and Courage

Mindful Self-Compassion is an empirically validated personal growth and development course.   In plain english- the data from dozens of published studies show that practicing self-compassion will make you more resilient and increase your well-being.  


The MSC training program is a cutting-edge, applied mindfulness course that combines neuroscience, positive psychology and ancient wisdom to help you discover and tap into powerful human strengths. The program is very practical and includes many skills you can apply in your daily life. The 9-session MSC program is based on the groundbreaking research and clinical work of Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer.

In my own life, I have practiced mindfulness meditation and applied mindfulness since 2004. I am a Certified Teacher of Mindful Self-Compassion.  I was the first certified MSC teacher in Thailand!  For a while, I was the only certified teacher and I'm glad to share that there are more now...
